wonderful hosts, and then pristine nature. If you want Nirvana, then you must visit Ek Chidiya Cottage. I would definitely recommend any one who loves to be close to nature. Children will enjoy the place, and love to be a nature explorer. You could also teach the chef your own fav recipe and ask them to cook for you. Drive... More

Visited the property with a friend recently. A cozy, neat little place. It takes you back in time. Specially the staff is very caring. The local villagers were very happy to meet us. Surely it would be on top of destinations for these summer holidays. Didn't want to come back to the city mess at all. Can't wait to go... More

It was a last moment decision to stay in Ek chidiya and me and my husband are totally happy with our decision. This place is located in a very beautiful orchard village and owned by Anurag and Pallavi. Even Ek chidiya has a nice orchard exclusively for its guests. We stayed in the front valley hill view room which had... More

Me and my wife had been planning a trip to Nainital but were worried that my daughter being small, will not be too comfortable in a crowded place that Nainital becomes in summer. Then I found about Ek Chidiya at Nathuakhan near Nainital and we loved what we saw on their website. In reality too, when we visited recently, the... More

We loved this hidden place in Nathuakhan! Reached there with some apprehension, because the last stretch of the road is still being laid, but all our doubts were settled when we entered through the gate. It's a quaint little place, which reminded me of the idyllic country cottages one only gets to read about! The owners have, I think deliberately,... More

Ek Chidiya Cottage was recommended to us by a friend who had visited the place earlier. We went there during the Dussehra holidays. And all the time, I kept thanking my friend in my mind for introducing us to the beautiful place. There was only one other room occupied at that time, and we enjoyed complete attention from the staff.... More

I visited Ek Chidiya on Christmas this year with my friends and their families. I must say it is a beautiful place in every aspect. It does not have the usual resort look, and is more like your own cottage home in the mountains. The setting is informal, and extremely comfortable. There is a beautiful view of a mountain village...
